Description

Unrivalled professional level control at a breakthrough price point. The PodBlaster is an entry-level digital audio processor desiged for podcasters, broadcast studios, news booths and programme production applications can also be used for dual ('main' and 'guest') microphone processing. Analogue and digital inputs and outputs, GUI set-up via USB and no fewer than nine pre-set audio profiles. 'Easy-Mode' GUI makes for easy set-up for exactly the right results, even for beginners!

Features:

  • Powerful, yet unobtrusive level control
  • Simple, easy-to-use GUI programme for setup via PC and USB
  • Great audio quality. The same superb DSP module used in our professional ALPS range
  • Factory presets deliver exactly the results you need for any application …fast
  • Cost-effective yet with balanced analogue I/O and S-PDIF digital I/O
  • Desktop case; Half-width 1-U rack size, two can be rack-mounted side by side with optional rack mounting kit.
  • Bright, Always-Visible LED bargraphs for audio confidence checks
  • Low audio latency (2.2 - 4 milliseconds), fast boot-up (<1 second).
  • Stereo or Dual-Mono
  • 96 or 88.2kHz native mode processing avoids multiple unnecessary rate conversions

Perceived loudness, dynamic range, peak level; suitable for all situations where some combination of these three must be unobtrusively controlled.

BENEFITS:

  • Produces that smooth professional sound… without breaking the bank!
  • Ends listener annoyance and ‘tune-out’ due to sloppy levels
  • Allows every presenter the freedom to concentrate on the content
  • Improves audibility and clarity of any programme
  • Eliminates overload distortion and damage forever
